In this Chicken curry recipe we have something different. In usual chicken curry, chicken pieces are served in lot of gravy but this chicken curry is little bit dry. I cooked it as a side dish for the vegetable fried rice on my daughter’s birthday. She prefers to have chicken fry to curry but to create a fry feel, i cooked this curry a bit dry. Try this, because it does not take much of your time.
